Frank Setula

“Frankie the Milkman”

Kawkawlin, Michigan


     Frank went home to be with his Lord and Savior Monday, November 19, 2018 at his home, age 81.  He was born October 29, 1937 in Bay County to the late John and Mary (Trojek) Setula.  Frank attended school at Kawkawlin Village School and T.L. Handy High School.  He joined the US Army in December of 1955.  When he returned home he went to work for Howard Wetters driving milk truck for 47 years hauling milk for MMPA.  He saw several generations of milk producing farms during that time and got to know a lot of different families.  Frank made sure that Grandpa and Grandma made it to all five of their grandson’s football games.  He loved his Detroit Tigers, even when they didn’t do so well.  Frank was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church and loved going on Father/Son trips to baseball games for Tigers and Loons with his fellow church group.  He enjoyed Caleb’s Kin group and looked forward to the “Howdyshell campout” every summer with several other church family campers.

     Frank is survived by his wife Joan; children: Zach (Kelly) Setula, Vicki (Allen) Wangler, Carmel (Carl) Martin, and Chris (Krissy) Alexander, grandchildren: Trenton Martin, Deon Martin, Alex Bush, Reid Alexander, Ryan Alexander and Lexie Alexander, great grandchildren: Uriah and Kaleah Martin; Kya, Eli and Roman Martin and Karmyn Bush, five sisters-in-law: Rose Setula, Janet Setula, Judy, Faith and Terry Fahrner; three brothers-in-law: Dick Fahrner, Fred Fahrner and Charles Fahrner, many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and several dear friends.  Frank was predeceased by three brothers: Rudy Setula, Ed (Jenny) Setula and Charles Setula and two sisters, Frank's twin Frances (Hank) Frenzke and Helen (Leo) Desrochers.

     Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Service is being planned for Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 11:00 am at Cornerstone Baptist Church, 3687 N. Euclid Ave., Bay City, MI 48706 with Pastor Joshua Rager officiating.  No visitation will be held at Squires Funeral Home.  Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to the “Wishes of the family.”
